Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet per second to knots is 0.59248380129641, which means that 1 foot per second is equal to 0.59248380129641 knots:

1 ft/s = 0.59248380129641 kt

To convert 557 feet per second into knots we have to multiply 557 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from feet per second to knots. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft/s → 0.59248380129641 kt

557 ft/s → V(kt)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in knots:

V(kt) = 557 ft/s × 0.59248380129641 kt

V(kt) = 330.0134773221 kt

The final result is:

557 ft/s → 330.0134773221 kt

We conclude that 557 feet per second is equivalent to 330.0134773221 knots:

557 feet per second = 330.0134773221 knots

557 feet per second is equal to 330.013 knots

Alternative conversion
